Always one of our favorite events in NYC, Juxtapoz checked out the New York Art Book Fair last weekend at the Moma PS1 Museum. The event presented 283 international presses, booksellers, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from 26 countries, and is put on by the fantastic Printed Matter of NYC. (Check out Printed Matter's curation of subversive art books in our new November 2012 issue).

We featured Zoran Pungercar's work a little while ago in 2011, and now we're back featuring more. Here are some of Pungercar's more recent illustrated works for zines and show posters. His folk art aesthetic and attentive yet imperfect renderings simplify characters into compelling narrative icons that shudder with dark undertones and mysterious and pseudo-mythical imagery, and he does show posters for some great musicians like Tune-Yards to boot.

With all the glowing gadgets and gizmos continuously competing for your attention, the experience of sitting down with a good ol’ magazine or zine could be looked at as a technological getaway. That’s one viewpoint. Then there are zines that are actual pieces of art, each cover painted slightly different, bound by needle and thread.

This should be a good one; Bill Daniel (featured in our April 2011 issue, and his "Who Is Bozo Texino?" film was screened at our film series at the MoMA this year) has teamed up with one of our editors, Austin McManus, for a one-night exhibition, Tin Ton Tic Tac Click Clack at the Lost Door in San Francisco on Sunday December 4. Photos, new zine, and a screening of "Who Is Bozo Texino?" all in one night.

Artist Phlegm did this piece in Wales on the side of a Sukhoi jet. At first glance, the piece actually looks like it was supposed to be painted on the side of the plane. Sukhoi is a Russian company founded in 1939 specializing in military aircraft, and the UK-based Phlegm adds a classic, mid-20th century looking piece to it. More looks after the jump . . .
